Thanks, AM. As there will be no crowds anyway, there may not be any need to play at PP. They could be at Solar Campus.

he works in the health and safety part of the club and is on all home match days that's my thinking but he knows more than me and just said the dates no clubs or places some clubs are screening there games for £5 each I would pay to see that

Read elsewhere that we supposedly had our first friendly today at Moss Rose. We beat Macclesfield apparently with goals from Vaughan, Ferrier & Walker-Rice.

Lost 1-0 to TNS - Jacko out - that's a joke!!

Two different sides out for each half - so must have been a lot of youth players....

Also Matty Foulds and Fraser Preston were supposed to be playing! Would be great if they came in. Also suggestion Ellis is training with the squad.....

The first half xi looks stronger than the second half xi, without knowing anything about the triallists. Only Morris of the second half was a regular last season.

Just noticed Nelson didn’t feature in either half, wonder if any significance in his absence.

The first half team looks a very strong side, but how could they lose without scoring? Eight of the team played regularly together last season and Spearing and O'Connor should have been improvements.

TNS are three weeks ahead of us in terms of fitness and most of our players have not had a game for six months.

I would not read much into it.

Thanks Boz. Looks like we're filing in a few squad places now.

Listening to Jacko on YT- he said the fitness simply wasn't there - and he hadn't expected it to be. Said in both halfs good for 20 minutes and then "leggy" thereafter. They have also been training every day before the game so no surprise I guess.
